Does Wilkes-Barre, PA auto insurance cover vandalism and theft?

Every Wilkes-Barre, PA driver must carry liability insurance. The state requires a minimum amount of coverage you must carry, and failure to do so can result in serious consequences. Even if you are found to be not at fault in an accident, you face serious potential penalties if the officer discovers that you are uninsured, including fines, license suspension, and registration suspension. But even carrying the required insurance does not protect you from everything. The Shay Agency can help you ensure you have the coverage you need.

Liability Insurance Is Limited

If you only carry liability insurance, you only have coverage for the victims if you are found to be at fault in an accident. Liability insurance does not cover your own damages in an accident, and it does not cover other circumstances.

Comprehensive Coverage

You can benefit from comprehensive coverage if you are concerned about theft or vandalism. Comprehensive coverage protects your own vehicle if you are a victim of theft or vandalism. There is also coverage for damages incurred if you hit an animal while driving or if your car is injured during bad weather, such as from a tree limb.

Collision Coverage

Suppose you are also concerned about having protection for your own vehicle. In that case, collision coverage will pay to repair or replace your vehicle if you collide with another vehicle or even a tree.
